Hawaii Tea Club

The Hawaii Tea Club presents Oolalah! An Afternoon of Oolongs with special guest Thomas Shu, a noted tea purveyor who has received the distinction of Ambassador of Taiwan Tea by the Taiwan Tea Manufacturers’ Association.  This interactive workshop will focus on the basics and finer points of oolong.  Topics will include choosing the right tea for you, proper brewing techniques and accoutrements that make oolongs fun.

Mr. Shu will lead the group in a cupping of 6 new oolong teas that are scheduled for release later this year.  Here’s a preview:

Classic Jade Oolong

This naturally fragrant high mountain tea instantly captures the heart with its flavor and aroma.  After repeated oxidation and rolling, the lasting flavor is sealed in tightly curled leaves.

The vision of the Hawaii Tea Club is to be a community of tea enthusiasts who enjoy drinking tea, learning about it and sharing their experiences with others. This workshop is the club’s first event and will take place on Saturday, March 3rd at The Pineapple Room, Ala Moana Center, Macy’s 3rd floor, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.  Admission is $20.00 which includes light refreshments.
